Career Pathways: Introducing Entrepreneurship and Small Business Concepts for Youth with Disabilities

Thursday, August 02, 2018
2:00pm - 3:00pm ET

This training/Community of Practice meeting will recap the vision of WIOA for following a career pathway model for service delivery and explore Alaska’s innovation of including entrepreneurship and small business concepts into their service structure for youth.

In this Community of Practice meeting/webinar, attendees will:

  • Gain a broader understanding of how to implement a career pathways framework as a foundation for service delivery for VR consumers and their partners (e.g., schools, workforce, etc.).
  • Learn about Alaska’s S'Cool Store initiative and how each of S’Cool Store’s five modules introduce students with disabilities to small business concepts as they work through setting a goal, developing a business plan, and putting the plan into action.
  • Discover how to become a member of a collaborative community of practice on career pathways opportunities.

The webinar took place on Thursday, August 2, 2018 from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET.

This webinar is brought to you by the joint Technical Assistance Team of WINTAC and LEAD as a part of the Career Pathways Community of Practice (CoP). Membership in the CoP is not required for attendance but, if you are not already a member, we welcome new members. You can sign up at:
